Class Dojo Information

3 months ago

I use the Class Dojo website/app to track & reward student behavior and to keep parents up-to-date on classroom happenings.

To create a parent account, you will need the specific code associated with your student (for added safety).  These will be sent home during the first week of school. Let me know if you don't receive yours!
